Sharing the ground floor with the magnificent triple-height lobby is The Stratford Brasserie. The seasonal menu, by Ben Harrington, formerly of Soho House, is characterised by local produce and European influences, blending classic brasserie staples with a touch of the unexpected.

Uniting locals, guests and residents over coffee, cocktails and light, relaxed dishes, The Stratford Brasserie is unlike anything in the city – a sprawling, vibrant space featuring an open kitchen, eclectic seating and lounge area and in addition an art installation called ‘Gust of Wind’ by Paul Cocksedge.

Ambience is great but the food is not what I was expecting.. the steak 🥩 taste horrible. We only find the starter appealing . But maybe the sea bream could have being better but it was not available
red prawn pasta was ok but portion look like a kids meal 🤦🏿‍♂️

The atmosphere was nice. The decore is fab feels really modern it is 1 minute from Stratford westfield.
The starters were nice they didn't have the scallops so we ordered the cod bites they were tasty. We also got the sea bream to share. The presentation was excellent unfortunately the flavour let me down. The fish I ordered to share was drowning in fish sauces and that's all I could taste.
Everything else was nice the salad , the courgette the wine and dessert all in all, I'll give it a 6/10

Service was soooo slow. We were offered drinks once. We asked for the bill as no one came over to us to take plates either.
Food great as is the venue but better service training or staff needed.

I'm afraid that we had a very mediocre meal, with mediocre service in a beautiful restaurant. The appetiser (scallops) were not very tasty. The chickory was the most interesting element on the plate. Our server brought over the wrong bottle of wine (the £22 one, not the £40 one we chose). We both had the ribeye. One was moist and a lovely cut of meat, but the other was mostly grisle. The salad we ordered to share never came, and we couldn't be bothered to point it out. We might grab a burger there again, but to spend that kind of money for mediocre service. ...what's the point?

The opening of this hotel has been really hyped up but the restaurant seriously disappointed. Service was slow and substandard, food and drinks - nothing exciting and overpriced, lack of ambience inside. Definitely do not pick this place for a special occasion

It’s a great place, quiet enough to have discussion.
Service is a bit slow, if you’re at the back and it’s full there’s little room for the servers to manoeuvre and therefore unlikely they come and check if you’re ok.
Getting the bill is a struggle.
Other than that, food is good and well priced for the area.

It is a lovely space, the person that served us was less than engaging. I was with 3 adults and 2 children, they bought out a lovely looking fish dish for the 12 year old. We'd ask for the children's menu fish dish. We suggested she may as well have it rather than throw it away, but no they insisted it was too expensive, and replaced it with the correct dish which was rather messily served. And although she didn't complain, children feel. Also the wine is kept up on the bar in a chiller and there wasn't a constant enough checking to see if more was needed. My veggie pasta dish was just about 10 pieces with no garnish in a big bowl so although tasty not pleasing to the eye. So food was tasty. We did get money off the kids meals in the end. But we left feeling disappointed, although having read reviews before we ate realising there is much more to be done to offer the dining experience suggested. Warmest.

The food was nice, but the service lacked any attention. The service was functional, all served well, but not like they really cared about your experience.
We didn’t pay the full service charge and when it was queried by the waiting staff, we explained that we paid what it was worth, they thanked us for the feedback and returned the full service charge to us. You can’t say fairer than that.
The drinks are really expensive (27.50 for two gin and tonics) and i think they would do well to realise they are in East London, not Central London.
Given the place has only been opened 13 weeks, it was a nice enough experience and I would return to see if they had improved

A very pleasant experience overall and might as well become one of our favourite local places to wine and dine.

The food was great both in presentation and taste. Surprisingly few people, maybe because it was a Wednesday night, but well staffed nevertheless.

Some of the dishes were on the expensive side, but there was a good variety with pasta and the likes more reasonably priced.

An excellent addition to Stratford’s dining scene, slightly upscale.

The food was OK, but the service needs major improvement. The waitress couldn't explain the dish (duck) even though the menu is not extensive at all, all she said was it's a new dish and it's rather complicated. They also mixed up my drink order. No one came to check if we are happy with the food and getting the attention of the staff was so difficult, it was awkward (we just wanted a little bit of extra maple syrup for the pancake..). The prices are definitely was above what the food and the experience is worth.

The waiter we had was brilliant. He asked if he could recommend wine and gin for us and both were exceptional (and not the most expensive). He was let down by how long we had to wait for food however. In a not very busy restaurant we had to wait 35 minutes for our brunch!!
The food when it came was very nice though.

Tried this out with friends using the resident discount. Service is friendly and warm. All day menu with quite wide £ range, and portion size. Sirloin (me) was nicely cooked but gristley and lacking a good bit of fat. Hasselback giant potato not great - would have preferred smaller ones, as too hard cooked and chewy. Pasta was small portion but tasty (friend). Rump was tasty but chewy.
Nice bottle of CabSauv. They will happily do off menu cocktails and it’s a nice place to hang out.

I've ate at the Stratford Brasserie twice now and both times have been brilliant. The staff are attentive enough without being in the way. The food was delicious and the right quantity served and the cost was fair. I love the fact that I can go somewhere and actually hear the person I'm with and not have raise my voice

Waited nearly an hour for food which then came out cold. The food was expensive and wasn’t a great portion size. Not impressed, the manager didn’t apologise, but they did take one breakfast cost off the bill. A lot of room for improvement needed.

This is hard to review as the building itself is unfinished and lack of detail. This also comes across with some of the staff and there there are those who are exceptional. The bar area needs a lot of attention to detail with how they provide service and cleanliness.

The uniforms for the whole of the brasserie in one word odd. Love the the colours but choice maybe not be the best. Ill-fitting garments and manufacture not to a 5 star standard. Also you know really get to understand who is who as too many different uniforms. I counted 5. Again lack of attention to detail.

Food we really could not fault everything was as expected with the exception of the beef tartare we both though it was to coarsely cut and way to much beer chips. Everything else was exceptional as well as the wait staff, we had 4 at our table and all of them I would highly recommend.

When the bill came I did find it odd that the hostesses name was on the check and not our server as I asked if this was our server and was told it was the hostess, I wish I got the names of all of them as they really made us feel special.

We visited here for my boyfriend's pre birthday dinner. Service was very natural and attentive/accommodating. Food was very good overall - I found the Oysters too vinegary, the scallops and steak were delicious. Good range on the wine list. Gin and tonic was ridiculously strong! Staff brought a birthday plate without any prompting which was a lovely touch. Needed some more lighting to create bit more of atmosphere. Overall a very good experience.

Service could be improved staff trying to please but could be more knowledgeable and efficient. A training issue I am sure as they seemed willing.
Food was good.
Really not pleased that I booked on the 25% off top table deal and this doesn’t seem to have been applied. I wouldn’t expect to have to ask for this in front of a guest. It should be applied automatically and I didn’t notice until I arrived home.
We enjoyed our meal and I will give it another try but will check the bill more carefully next time.

I went to The Stratford Brasserie with my partner on a Wednesday night. Table service was great. The waiter was lovely and very kind. My partner ordered the sea bass and I had the quinoa with asparagus; both dishes were delicious. Burrata as a starter was amazing as well. However, the baked cauliflower was too spicy and dry. Maybe we should have asked about it before ordering it. We also had seasonal veggies as a side dish which was very tasty. Regarding the price, it was a bit expensive for us (£90 total including a glass of wine, an aperol spritz and a tiramisu) but I guess this is normal price for this type of restaurant. We highly recommend it !
